Call on the uk court system and Jamaican prison system to end this draconian torture not just on Vybz Kartel but anyone in the prison system
The deejay’s family claims that he is being punished with the draconian measure because two cell phones were found on the block where Kartel was being housed.
“Of the 1,700 inmate population housed at the tower street prison, [only] Kartel and two other men who are already on a security block in the middle of the prison were put on 23 hours locked down because 3 cell phones were allegedly found on the block. But strangely enough, in addition to the 100s of cell phones found daily at that institution, thousands at lockups across the island, the supt seems to have ill will against Kartel,” a spokesperson for the artiste said.
A family member, who declined to be named, also told Urban Islandz that the artiste suffers from a thyroid issue and his breathing is affected by the lockdown.
“He is forced to be locked down in a cell without proper ventilation all day in the summer heat with the dust and salt breeze from the nearby sea.”
Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, has been incarcerated since 2011. Late last year, he was transferred from the Horizon Remand Centre to the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre.
His lawyer, Isat Buchanan, shared that he was aware of the situation and planned to approach the court for assistance on behalf of his client whose health has deteriorated behind bars.
